    Re: Obama's Approval Rating Dips to New Low

    NEW FLASH:
    Low poll rating doesn't mean anything towards proving that all that crap some people said about Obama was true or false. For all the partisans out there let me say that if you talk like lower poll numbers prove exactly what you've been saying about Obama, then you've got to agree that low poll numbers prove exactly what everyone was saying about Bush just a few years ago.

    Maybe we're stuck in the rut that was 8 years of whinging about low poll ratings for GW Bush. What applies then should apply now, unless something drastic has changed.

    What's changed?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Obama's in his second term?

    1) Conservatives, like myself, who have an honest disagreement with him on which way the nation should go. He may win over a very few, but not likely, due to ideological differences.

    2) The looneys on my side of the fence, who hate Obama for the sake of hating Obama, and would give him bad grades, even if he had won the battle against cancer single-handedly.

    3) The looneys on your side of the fence, who see Obama as a traitor.

    4) Liberals, like yourself, who see Obama as not fighting hard enough for them, after all the promises he made.

    5) Independents, who are confused by all the mixed messages this administration has been sending.

    Put it all together, and Obama's ratings have nowhere to go but down. If Obama doesn't get his act together soon, and start being consistant on something (and I mean on ANYTHING), he may end up with Bush-like numbers before his first term is over.
    So as I stated yesterday, I think he has done an okay job. I was feeling very blah about him until I saw his performance with the Republicans in Baltimore. He clearly knew what he was talking about. I also genuinely liked his performance the State of the Union. I would just like to see him provide a better explanation for why he is doing certain things and NOT doing certain things. I think he should be showing up at the press corps more frequently and allowing them to ask questions.

    Yes, he has not kept all the promises he made but (1) what president/elected official has? and (2) He's been in office for little over a year. If he didn't keep his promises by the end of his term, then I would conclude he did not keep his promises.

    Reagan couldnt do without a teleprompter. Bush couldnt do with one or written notes. In other news those who were trying to compare Palin's favorability rating to Obama's job approval rating will be relieved to hear Palin is on the rebound and her favorability rating has dropped to 37 percent
